Our mission is to solve energy poverty in the Global South
with Lytefire Solar Tech and empower people with trainings to create sustainable jobs.

To do this, we have built an ecosystem of own brands and partners.

We are an impact company with strong family ties. We grow through an ecosystem of partnerships to empower people (users and partners) locally with Lytefire.

Our Brands

Lytefire is our Solar Energy Concentrator powering Ovens, Roasters or Dehydrators with no electricity.

GoSol presents our Educational Work with NGOs to spread the Lytefire Solar Ovens to high-impact settings.

Solar Fire France is commercializing the Lytefire 5 & 11 DeLuxe and Roaster applications in the French market.

The Lytefire Sauna is very recent and demonstrates the power of the sun for carbon free well-being and tourism activities.

Why Solar Fire
